Louisville first.

“Louisville first” means something different today than it did 48 hours ago. What was once a rally cry for the ‘best college sports town in America’ has some tarnish on its shine. So, the question is, where do we go from here? 

esse quam videri

Here’s to chasing dreams, love, and a life full of laughter.
But most of all – here’s to being, rather than seeming to be.

It’s a funny thing… You wake up one day and realize you’re there. The place you dreamed of, the place you worked your ass off to be, the place you never thought you’d reach. Yet, here you are. Maybe it hits you when you catch a glimpse of your reflection in the mirror and instead ofRead more

the world is still round

And just like that, another day is in the books. Despite my desperate pleading with the course of human nature, time still marches on. As I sit alone in my new apartment, the reality of this is setting in. Here I am, unwinding from my first day of my first full-time job (the beginning of my career, perhaps),Read more

Your piece on TheRead more
